Recycling on Campus
Consistent with the University's mission to emphasize environmentally oriented studies, Florida Gulf Coast University is committed to developing and implementing programs for the collection of recyclable materials and for the reduction of solid waste. The Physical Plant department is the lead unit in this endeavor.
All Together Now
Beginning March 2013, FGCU has implemented a single stream recycling system, following the guidelines of Lee County. That means all recyclables can now be placed in the same bin, without the threat of waste contamination. To help in this effort, every floor of every building on campus has a recycling station consisting of a recycling and a waste bin side by side. If your area is in need of either bin, please contact the Work Management Center at 239-590-1370, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recycling guidelines vary by county. For example, what may be recyclable in Collier County (Naples) may not be recyclable in Lee County (where FGCU is located). It is important to check with your local municipality to determine what items are recyclable.Detailed campus recycling rules
